V is for ………

V is for Vanda Symon.

Looking  for some  great gritty New Zealand Crime Fiction? Give Vanda Symon a try….

The first book in her series is Overkill.

overkill Sam Shephard, a young sole-charge police constable in Mataura, is the main character in a new series of crime novels set in New Zealand.

When a young mother in the town is brutally murdered (it seems to be a professional job), Sam is at the heart of the police hunt to find the killer. But then Sam’s past relationship with the dead woman’s husband is revealed. Sam is stood down from the case and is now a prime murder suspect.

Frustrated, Sam loses her cool. She can’t stop herself making murder inquiries and gets into serious trouble with her police superiors. But then the young constable stumbles onto something. The murdered woman was working as a journalist and had uncovered a local scandal. She’d been killed to keep her quiet. When Sam enters this world she’s in real physical danger, until at last a conspiracy is uncovered and the killer revealed. Disillusioned, Sam prepares to leave town.

What will she do next?

Other books in the series include: Ringmaster, Containment, Bound and Faceless. Browse her books here.
